WHO Guideline on the Prevention and Management of Wasting and Nutritional Oedema (Acute Malnutrition)

Management Section

Thursday, 20 July 2023, 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. (EST)

The Global Action Plan on Child Wasting called upon the World Health Organization to develop and update normative guidance to support governments in the prevention and management of child wasting in all contexts. The recommendations of the management section of the new WHO Guideline on the prevention and management of wasting and nutritional oedema (acute malnutrition) are now available on MAGICapp. You can also find a briefing note summarizing the main messages from the guideline here.

WHO, UNICEF and the Global Nutrition Cluster Technical Alliance invite you to join a webinar where WHO colleagues will walk you through the new recommendations that have been released on the management of infants at risk of poor growth and development, and children with wasting and nutritional oedema.
